9:02 am
addressing the country later tonight. if there's a strong likelihood then he may announce his resignation. >> darya: another big story that we're following the i phone-4 is now available at verizon . jackie sissel is live at 8 verizon store >> reporter: that may turn it to be the story that there isn't a big lineup here. there are people who lined up around 7:00 a.m.. to get the i phone-4. that line quickly dissipated. lots of employees but not a lot of people. i was on the internet looking around, it seems like that is the common story around the country not as many people showing up to by the i
9:03 am
phone. they did have a date to pre order the expected to average 50,000-1 million people but they expected the big day today. we talked a couple people to figure out why it was so important to get it today. >> i got here around 7:30 a.m. it was important for me to get this done today because my phone has not worked since i got at&t. it has been obtained it has power to my apartment none of the city's air travel to. the trouble of for work. i just wanted to make sure i got on the work. >> reporter: at the light the i phone? i love the iphone the service of the problem. i really did not want to try something new i really do like the iphone

9:05 am
this thing selling. >> darya: they took the steam out of their own career. >> gabe: verizon led a statement. this is about their very third date. they said " 8:10 a.m. february. verizon wireless ceased orders and ended the most successful first-day sales in history of the company. in just our first two hours we sold more funds than any thursday it launched in our history. when you consider it initial orders were placed between three-5:00 a.m.. " in two hours they sold more funds than it ever sold ever in their history. so the kind of leads me to believe it's gonna be hot it's selling. i don't know, the good news is this someone could not make it
9:06 am
today maybe it won't sell out. i do think they will. that's good news. >> james: kovach to people who are existing customers talk to him that the difference and plans there is a difference in the data plan between at&t and verizon . >> gabe: present is only offering when data planned $30 a month unlimited. at&t offers to one is $15 t hundred t is almost impossible to use more than two to exert the debt.gigabytes of data. if you use all of the that the verizon is a good one. but
9:07 am
if you don't use that much you could save more with at&t. i know people who did the $15 a month and they never go under the 250 mb. light years and now the present takes a lot of the network allows of at&t perhaps they will be better in the bay area. >> darya: the book of the men he get is i love the i found i just would like to talk on it. horizon may solve that. >> gabe: hopefully we'll know in a few weeks. >> darya: thank you, back with more in a couple of minutes. reporting live, kron 4 news. now, here is a look at the traffic. now, here is a look at the weather.

9:12 am
down inside of the scasquare. >> darya: what happens then, where it is pardo? does it go to the vice president who these people don't like or what? >> caller: egyptians are hoping that the military takes over temporarily until about a president's term expires. wheat basically spoke to family and friends in cairo this morning as they were ok with the military taking over. the military has been very trusted to read this for ordeal. they've been fighting with the people. when the military commanders met today with at the president who is their commander in chief that was a big indication that the army has chosen the people. >> james: interesting, is
9:13 am
this a martial law until september? >> caller: it is unclear whether that would constitute martial law if the military were to take over however the understanding is this is going to be a transitional period during the military can promote stability in the nation until elections can take place. >> darya: in the country like the u.s. we had some transitions it's kind of like we shake hands, the next guy comes in office. in many countries that sent the case what will happen? does this mean the president has to take a helicopter to a safe haven. what did he do? >> caller: unclear which is why it's breathtaking to watch and see what's going to happen. the president has about that he will not leave egypt and tilly's dead. he
9:14 am
will leave until his dying breath. that was more accurate. it is going to be very interesting to see what happens. not just to him but to his appointed vice president. >> james: give me a sense of the nature of the discontent by the upset of them for reasons of crimes? >> caller: there are crimes they won him constituted for. over the past few days people have been calling out his corruption and his family fortune at $70 billion. when you have this massive equity between those who have and those who have not and the shrinking middle class people are upset at him for crimes against
9:15 am
egyptians. in addition the emergency law calls cause arbitrary arrest. there's a long haul on the list that the egyptian and people would expect him to stand trial for. >> darya: what you think the u.s. government is doing rain now? >> caller: right now? >> caller: i think the united states must been in st. yet there is detrimental. he has ran many concessions agreed to fire his parliament and appoint a vice president. but people still want him to step down. i think the bombing administration's town over the past 48 hours as to contributed in some sense to where we are right now. >> james: elections in september, the military may be in charge tell then the
9:16 am
deal lot of campaigning between now and then, for the big powers and play in play >> caller: i think is going to be an open, fair game. i do get the brotherhood question a lot, i think the closest model that i believe egyptians are aspiring to is the turkish democratic model where you have a coalition government and a wide variety of parties with different ideologies essentially all contributing to the government. you do have parties in turkey as well. they remain a very moderate thing. >> darya: we'll stay tuned to see what happens. be ready for us to call you again there'll lot of unknowns here revealingly do
9:17 am
know is that it appears and then he is finally willing to step down. >> james: willing or not. >> darya: it looks like a time frame of 10:30 a.m. now. these protesters have been camped out waiting for this big address which we believe it will, 10:30 a.m. our time. >> james: live pictures of the liberation square. back with more in a minute. ♪ cadillac cts sports sedan. top-tier status edmunds.com. right now get this attractive lease offer on a cadillac cts sport sedan. ♪ cadillac. the new standard of the world.
